With The Climate Book, a stunning and essential new work, Greta Thunberg takes her mission to the next level … [It is] an incredible and moving resource. There are chapters on almost everything you might need to know about … the book is a curated, portable library of knowledge, full of classics. Everyone will get something different from reading this book … It is an extraordinary body of work and I can’t recommend it highly enough. You feel the passion as well as the intellectual heft of the authors, and that is what is so moving about it. It is time for all of us to rise up.

Rowan Hooper, New Scientist

I would hope it is the kind of book everyone feels they should buy, read and act on: if you’ve tried to recycle a coffee pod, bought an electric car or started using a reusable water bottle, this book knows the combination of fear, hope and duty that made you do it and has a million more suggestions. It should be a bookcase staple, like Stephen Hawking’s A Brief History of Time or Yuval Noah Harari’s Sapiens

Caitlin Moran, The Times

Spectacular … The scope of this work is planetary in scale. It is a massive undertaking in which Greta Thunberg calls on the best people possible to help her make sense of the rapid trashing of the natural world and the ecosystems life depends on … Ultimately, this is an unexpectedly uplifting volume, fizzing with the world’s best science and analysis, and what we can now do with it
